Self-Improvement | F**k It, You Might As Well REALLY Glow | Note 329
Sometimes it doesn’t last long.
“So, with just the briefest look at the spatial and temporal context of our lives, we are utterly insignificant. As the Perspective Machine lifts up so far above the woods that we forget what the word means, we see just one moving light. It is beautiful. A small, gently glowing light. It is a firefly lost somewhere in the cosmos. And a firefly – on Earth – lives for just one night. It glows beautifully, then goes.
And up there, so high in our Perspective Machine we realize that our lives are really just like that of the firefly. Except the air is full of 6.5 billion fireflies. They’re glowing beautifully for one night. Then they’re gone.
So, Fuck It, you might as well REALLY glow.
And there we go again. Did you taste it? That was the brief taste of freedom. Sometimes it doesn’t last long. But it’s an unforgettable taste.
So, Fuck It, you might as well REALLY glow.”
